The Celebration is a day-long symposium that calls graduate and postdoctoral scholar alumni, campus leaders, current graduate, and postdoctoral scholars together to honor the success of our graduate community and to engage in a dialogue about its future. Today, more than ever, professional development is essential to success. No one understands this better than our alumni. And the time is now to create a world-class joint venture in graduate professional development between our alumni and campus communities. You are invited to take a seat at our table and lend your voice to the process.
In commemoration of UCI’s 50th anniversary, the inaugural 2016 Celebration of Graduate Success highlighted five decades of graduate program impact and some of our most successful graduate and postdoctoral scholar alumni. The event featured alumni speakers and panelists who represented the Bright Past. Brilliant Future. of UC Irvine’s graduate degree programs. On Friday, June 9, 2017, we will celebrate again. This year’s program will move the conversation along to focus on action that all graduate community stakeholders can take to help UCI build a stronger model for graduate professional success.
